Nominations Invited for the JR Cook Youth Council Advisor of the Year
Effective and successful youth councils consistently have one key ingredient in common; an advisor who is involved, provides wise counsel and guidance, and is willing to work closely with youth council members as they make and carry out their decisions.
UNITY values the dedication of these many individuals who provide adult leadership and nurture and support the development of Native youth. In appreciation, UNITY will honor one such advisor this year during the 2014 National UNITY Conference in Portland, Oregon with the presentation of the inaugural JR Cook Youth Council Advisor of the Year Award.
The honoree will be recognized during the UNITY Celebration Banquet on Tuesday July 1, 2014. The honoree must be present to receive the award.
